SS Rajamouli is the epitome of a director. With Baahubali, he made Indian films more widely known in the film world. His most recent picture, RRR, also enjoys success abroad and is a favourite among Western movie stars. Now that he's met the Russo Brothers, a Hollywood filmmaker combo, Rajamouli has spoken out about a Netflix grievance.

Rajamouli said, "First of all, I am truly furious with Netflix since they took only the Hindi version, not the other four," during the conversation. I do, therefore, have a grievance against them. The second point is that, yeah, I was taken aback by the response from the west.

A good narrative is a good story for everyone, he said. But I didn't think I could produce movies that appealed to Western tastes. I had never trusted myself. Therefore, as soon as it was released on Netflix, viewers began to watch it, word of mouth began to spread, and critics began to give it favourable reviews.

He added clarification and said, "Yes, I was extremely, incredibly startled. I'm also really grateful to Netflix. Without Netflix, it would not have been conceivable. I respect them greatly for that."
